The Internet believes Ted Cruz is the Zodiac killer — and so far he hasn’t denied it

Published

Something spooky happens when you ask Google about Sen. Ted Cruz.

When you type the words, “is Ted Cruz the,” the first result search engine’s autofill feature suggests the Texas senator and Republican presidential candidate might be the infamous Zodiac killer.

Suspicions appear to have first been raised in 2013, before Cruz announced his presidential candidacy, but the rumors have gained steam as the conservative senator has established himself as a top contender for the GOP nomination.

Never mind that Cruz was born in 1970, nearly a year after the serial killer’s last victim was fatally shot in San Francisco.

The propagators of this Internet rumor say the evidence is hiding in plain site.

It doesn’t matter that almost none of the evidence piling up under the #ZodiacTed hashtag is in any way factual. There’s now a T-shirt advertising the theory, and proceeds benefit women’s health programs in west Texas.

Of course, there are naysayers.

Some believe signs point to the suspicions becoming a political issue.

The steady drip-drip-drip of evidence, coupled with Cruz’s continuing silence, has only raised more concerns that the 45-year-old presidential candidate may, in fact, be responsible for the string of killings in the 1960s and 1970s.

After months of casting doubt about wearing masks, President Donald Trump on Monday emailed his supporters about the "confusion" on the subject.

"We are all in this together, and while I know there has been some confusion surrounding the usage of face masks, I think it's something we should all try to do when we are not able to be socially distanced from others," Trump wrote in the email, that was posted online by multiple journalists.

The first coronavirus hot spots in the country were densely-populated cities with international ports of entry, like New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle.

But the virus has now penetrated deep into rural areas around the country. And according to Politico, a new study has shed light on the catastrophic problems this has created for rural communities: more than half of U.S. rural communities have no ICU beds, forcing hospitals to transfer patients far away to other facilities that can accommodate severe COVID-19 cases.

Joy Reid medical expert blasts the president’s lies on coronavirus: ‘Trump needs to stay in his lane’

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.

"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.

"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
